Eagle Rock Entertainment news: Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck

Although I was way too young to catch the Forum concert myself, I always look forward to seeing the Stones' archival DVDs - especially ones recorded in LA! Read on for more details on what seems to be a cool series... 

Eagle Rock Entertainment are about to deliver a double dose of Rolling Stones this November, with the debut of the new series of live concerts: From The Vault.

The series will unveil live concert films from the Rolling Stones archive, now receiving their first official release. The footage from these concerts have been carefully restored, and the sound has been newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain.

From The Vault – Hampton Coliseum – Live In 1981 will be released simultaneously on SD Blu-ray, DVD/2CD, DVD/3LP, DVD, and Digital Formats on Nov. 4.

From The Vault – L.A. Forum  – Live In 1975 will be released on DVD, DVD/2CD, DVD/3LP, and Digital Video on Nov. 18. 

Hampton Coliseum – Live In 1981 boasts a full-length 2 1/2 hour concert (see track listing below). The Rolling Stones' American Tour in 1981, in support of smash Tattoo You, was the most successful tour of that year, taking in a then record $50 million dollars in ticket sales. The 50-date tour kicked off in Philadelphia in September 1981 and ended with two dates in Hampton, Virginia on December 18-19. The show on Dec. 18, which was also Keith Richards’ birthday, was the first ever music concert to be broadcast on television as a pay-per-view event.

L.A. Forum – Live In 1975 also clocks in at 2 1/2 hours. The Rolling Stones’ “Tour Of The Americas ‘75” was the band’s first tour with new guitarist Ronnie Wood. Even before the dates started, there were dramatic scenes in New York City at the official tour announcement, when the band unexpectedly turned up on a flatbed truck to play “Brown Sugar.” After a couple of low-key warm-up shows in Louisiana, the tour began on June 3, with a 44-date run lasting through August 8. They settled into the L.A. Forum for a five-night stint from July 9th to 13th. The L.A. Forum – 1975 film features the show from July 12.

Additionally, on Nov. 24, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Live In Tokyo by Jeff Beck on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Formats. The show features Jeff Beck and band performing a set that includes “Stratus,” “Led Boots,” “Cause We Ended As Lovers,” “Big Block,” “A Day In The Life,” “Rollin’ And Tumblin’” and more.

Filmed at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan on April 9, 2014, these Japanese dates were the first to feature Jeff Beck’s new backing band of Jonathan Joseph (drums), Nicolas Meier (guitars) and Rhonda Smith (bass). The set list includes some freshly minted songs that fans will never have heard before. In contrast to Beck’s previous DVDs for
Eagle Rock - Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scott’s and Rock ‘N’ Roll Party filmed in small clubs - Live In Tokyo is filmed in a major concert arena and has a very different, more expansive feel.
